Raising Lambs

Raising Lambs

A Chapter by Dave Brown



Beauty & the Beasts: 15 Animals Who Love Flowers | Cute animals, Animals,  Animals beautiful

Mary, always a city dweller

Had seen a recent lamb documentary

Thinking she would buy a wee one

Along with a farm in Glengarry


As a real estate agent

She was aware of an exceptional buy

And with warm, fuzzy expectations

Thought she’d give lamb rearing a try


Things went very well until

It got stuck in the electric fence

Which happened again and again

Because sheep are exceptionally dense


Fortunately, her neighbor came over

A big handsome guy named Hugh

Thoughtfully assisting distraught Mary’s

Sweet lamb concerns to go adieu  


She has since considered selling the farm

To relocate slightly elsewhere in Glengarry

Promoting a warm, fuzzy relationship with Hugh

Which would make for a much happier Mary


Until she by accident discovered

He had brutally slaughtered her lamb

Causing dear Mary enough of a shock

To shattered an electrocardiogram


Hugh has since remained with Mary

Although it seems he can never be found

But Mary has kept him all warm and fuzzy

Buried with her dear lamb, underground

And the moral of your story: Don't mess with Mary's lambs unless you are ready for the fuzzy underground. I swear this must be the sixteenth poem I've read of yours about Mary & her lambs. I think she's tried out a wide variety of pets under your expansive imagination. But still, I'm starting to think you must have a "thing" for Mary & her giblets. Surely you don't want to end up in the fuzzy underground?!??! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

This is good. I'd hate to get on Mary's bad side.
